biker the new religion lol
been without a bike for maybe three years in total since 1989...unfortunatly now is one of those times had a 1200 bandit last year i went camping on. ruck sacks are a terrible idea if you cant make it reach the seat, on an unfaired bike at least ((you can allways strap some kit to the pillion seat to achieve this ) did leeds to south wales in 3 hours once with three stops for fuel (its about 270 miles lol) coudnt feel my arms for 3 days.
been 195 mph on my old zx12r lost half the contents of my rucksack before i realised it had ripped open (on the section of private track between my house and work on a monday morning honest...officer )
cant imagine an extended trip of over a week on a bike tbh unless your useing hotels and ive never been able to afford that, doable with a 1000cc+ with luggage i supose but if you have the right bike for that sort of stuff your not a biker in my opinion, your a tourist that just happens to be on a bike.
ide say three days solo on a bike with no luggage is about it wild camping wich i have done many times on various bikes, only ever had a on//off road bike once a transalp and i never took it off road dosent seem to be an issue to take a faired bike a mile offroad if your on any sort of forestry track as long as it isnt to wet ofc.
i/we (the wife) are now at least 4 years from a new bike of any kind im 42 this year and the bike i buy next will be the last one i ever own (hopefully an 1800 suzuki my first ever custom ) looking to do a trip across america when the kids leave home ...but im trying to get the wife to agree to do it on a horse even though neither of us have ever riden even once lol
looking for an organised trip of at least 2000 mile take a few months off prob a pipe dream but what the hell will be memorable if it happens.
